Redundancy?

So the results are in, I think we've got off fairly lightly. I get the feeling that people at my place aren't too upset, I'm a bit disappointed I'm not for the chop.

What's the feeling through the rest of the Infantry, happy, sad or indifferent?

Quite a few bodies at our battalion announced this morning. Get the feeling few will be upset as well but heyho people are usually feeling suicidal post leave heh.

Yeah, I missed out by a few months, one of our blokes is under the impression that if you don't volunteer then you won't get a payout, he apparently heard this from the RCMO.

Starange as I didn't see that mentioned anywhere in the DIN.

He probably had the brief from some thick infanteer.
Tell me about it, he wouldn't believe me when I told him that the people I knew who got compulsory redundancy in Tranche 1 got the same payout as those who volunteered, just six months later.

That's mental, either the bloke briefing did a shit job of reading the script, or your mate's thicker than whale spunk. Surely someone else who sat through the same brief could put him straight?

I had a look at the Inf Jnrs, it's bizarre that they've taken Ptes left and right of the 9/10 year blokes.

Is there a trend of making those who are married redundant ?

I think it's probably a bit of both to be honest. I missed out by 4 months, I wouldn't have complained if I'd got it.

I'm on the list, but I've got 20 pensionable years in the bank. So if they pick me its 'so long and thanks for all the fish'.

They are recruiting to preserve continuity through the rank structure, otherwise there will be a shortage in certain ranks in years to come and they will not be able to fill it.

Another thought - if you are permanently downgraded you will NOT be made redundant... what the hell? Any thoughts on this gem?

I noticed that, then got happy as I'm only temp downgraded and won't get perm downgraded till the end of the year so would be eligible for this tranche, I then noticed I'm a mong who can't count realised I wasn't eligible.

Met a bloke today, REME electrician, Sgt, just got the redundancy nod, he's cock a hoop! Degree in the bank, job already sorted for civistrasse and £80k in his back pocked, he virtually skipped around camp!

This is what a lot of people, especially the papers, seem to miss. I've not seen one person upset or worried that they are eligible or had been chosen for redundancy.

I've seen a lot of people upset that they aren't eligible.

I imagine the 400 Johnny G's getting cut have got quite a bonk on about it.
Although, they must of seen it coming over the horizon as soon as Lumely burnt their trump card.

If they are entitled to the same payouts as the rest of us then they've got no more to purge about than anyone else.
